R E M E M B E R

The Seventh of November.


There was a young child of three or four
Who ended up on quite the tour
They strayed too far from the group

and were never see again.

R E M E M B E R when you that very same age with all the naivety and innocence that would have gone hand-in-hand with the limited experience one would have expressed.

Do you R E M E M B E R being that difficult and taxing young age?

Do you R E M E M B E R when the world was pink and fluffy? With fairies and unicorns. Magic and kindness.

compared to a world now made up of several highly-strung cowards. Hypocrites. Terrorists. Bullies. Back-stabbers. Naysayers.


With their cold, meaningless, self-centred, bullying, opposing

lies.

The truth is a bitter pill to chew up and discard and is o p e n to all manner of

where adults lie by the ember
and the children die by the fire

R E M E M B E R a time when dreams came true. When life was full of hope and wonder. Dreams and inspirations.

Do you R E M E M B E R what your old dream was - the one from so long ago?

Did you dream of the adventure? Of the love and triumph that would often accompany your rather active lifestyle? Or were you the more ambitious dreamer; dreaming of singing and dancing and acting?

I pose you this significant inquiry because I, myself, can not bring myself to R E M E M B E R. (For your sake). Was I a mathematician in disguise? The future Prime Minister of Great Britain? A dancer with a frilly skirt? A secret financer? I do not recall.

Neither will you. In the end.
But not to worry
it's all in good time.

Deleted User: (A review in progress). I like this. It's sparse, gritty and atmospheric - reminiscent of the classic Golden Age of American detective fiction of the Thirties. I've only read the beginning, but I'll definitely be back. This writer knows their stuff and has done their homework on detective work. T...

Felisa Yoder Osburn: I really enjoyed the story. Civil War stories are some of my favorites and the intertwining of the past with current times was wonderful. I look forward to reading the next stories.

mindushree1402: It was really amazing.... I was not able to put it down..... just beyond awesome... no wonder writers do play with words... amazing storyline.... addictive too... I was so used to it that even when I'm not reading it story was continously streaming in my mind.... good job... I really liked that f...

Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...

Erica Mifflin: is very very neat and is one of my favorite novel of all time I want more stories like this please write another one. I love it so much thank you for your stories it was like a good book to my heart and I want more stories like this

Kashaf Azmat: The concept is excellent everything is well defined that you can picture the whole scenario which makes you feel connected to the plot and this is the thing that catches my eye and this what i am looking for in every novel.Keep it up

Caryn Moy: Love this series! Very well written, great plot and characters! I love time travel mysteries and this was different from anything I've read in the past! Bring on the sequel!!! I need to see the Compact get squashed!

Samantha Speed: There were several punctuation, grammar, and missing word problems but it did not detract from the story. This story was very well done, enjoyable, and had an interesting enough plot. It took a while to finish. This story is not complete. I love it, but I want to see another book or have more cha...

Sara Grover: When I first started reading, it was a bit slow; though only because it was so information intense and fast-paced in trying to describe how this complex galactic corporation/government like entity controls known space. I would suggest maybe adding a preface to better educate the reader to help av...

JanThompson: This book gives a beautiful description of a country which one rarely gets to see. The contrast between rich and poor is very evident too.The storyline actually sheds a compelling light on why women in certain countries sell themselves just to help their families or even to survive themselves.

Tavis Ryan King: "What Happened to Charlie Carmine" is a fabulous mo-gee-toe cocktail fuelled midget orgy of psychology, fantasy and sarcasm. I laughed out loud when reading this novel so many times it made the London commuters I shared space with look at me with curious disdain - and I did not care.The protagoni...

Ali Albazaz: I started reading "Caged" few hours ago and I'm on chapter 7 now. Caged is definitely one of the most addictive stories I've ever read. Thank you so much for writing this novel.

Emperor2000: I joined Inkitt and downloaded this book following a friend who has been on here sometime recommending it. After they spoke about it a bit, I thought why not give it a go. Initially I only expected to read a few chapters, as I have little time to spend reading (not as much as I like). However I c...
